Oh, Hell. Another btw. I am reluctantly mounting a new set of TKC's for this weekend's mostly dirt frolic (see my sig). The Rally Raid I drew this year has some sweet sportbike roads on it but it's mostly dirt roads. Some of which might be moist. (Friday chance of rain.) It kills me to mount a rear that will likely be blowed effin' up after one weekend. But, the TKC is so soft it still sticks on the pavement. Or should I say sticks TO the pavement. As in almost to the "black cheese" Kenda Big Block category. And it has a nice sporty profile, unlike the flat K60. The Tourance or Anakee2 is no help if it gets moist so.......damn. I wish we had another choice. Grrrrr.

The TKC front is great on all surfaces (except wet pavement), and I'd mount it with a Heidi rear if I was doing a 5000 mile gravel/dirt/rock only run.
RTB V- The Texas ADV Rally- Hurry before we fuck this up!
